Ellie Kemper welcomes her first baby! Congrats to the 'Kimmy Schmidt' star

Ellie Kemper's "constant hangover" is over!

That's how the "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" actress described pregnancy during a visit to TODAY in April, but now she and husband Michael Koman have welcomed their first child.

For now, the baby's sex — and name — remains a mystery, just as it did for Kemper and her husband up until the big day.

"We are not finding out — isn't it wonderful?" she told us in April. "We have it in an envelope, actually. But I haven't looked!"

Just to be on the safe side, we made sure to give her both pink and blue balloons — as well as a few fun essentials.

Kemper announced her pregnancy on "The Tonight Show" in the spring, and host Jimmy Fallon instantly leapt forward to speak directly to her baby bump.

"I can't wait for you to see ('Kimmy Schmidt')," he shouted at Kemper's abdomen. "Your mommy is very funny; she's very talented!"

Here's hoping funny runs in the family — actually, thanks to a call to TODAY from Kemper's mom, we already know it does.

Congratulations to the whole family!
